At our 4th Annual Culturally Responsive Teaching conference we will bring together educators, students, community organizations and others from across the nation to share information, scholarship and best practices in culturally responsive teaching.

Our conference theme: CRT-L: The Intersection of Inclusion and Equity

This year our conference spans two days: Thursday, April 19 and Friday, April 20 with a pre-conference CRT Institute on Wednesday, April 18, 2018.

Our day one keynote is Dr. Kimberly R. Moffitt, associate professor of American Studies and affiliate assistant professor in the Departments of Africana Studies and Language, Literacy and Culture Ph.D. program at UMBC. Dr. Moffitt’s research focuses on mediated representations of marginalized groups as well as the politicized nature of Black hair and the body. Day one will also include an Education Town Hall.
